It’s Rachel’s birthday! And if you’ve been following along, you know that also means that today she’s giving herself, and you, a big gift … the first chapter of Forever Alone: One introverted millennial’s half-agonizing, half-hopeful journey through singledom.
I’ve watched her pour a ton of time and energy into this — it’s been a true labor of love! I’m just as excited as you to listen in (because she hasn’t let me yet, haha).
Even though I haven’t heard it yet, I know for sure it’s going to be relevant to more than just single folks (though you should definitely share with your single friends). Knowing Rachel, she’s found a way to make it hit home for just about anyone who wants something that they haven’t yet figured out how to get. And also knowing Rachel, it’ll be funny and snarky and poignant and inspiring, in equal measure.
I asked her to give me a preview of what’s in this chapter, and she said she’s getting into:
- The difference between seeing her singledom as her “fault” vs. her “responsibility,”
- Why wanting love is different than not wanting to be alone,
- The first movie that broke her heart, and all the couples she’s been obsessed with over the years,
- Her inner debate over whether her expectations and standards are too high,
- … and a LOT more.
